There does seem to be another level of "standard-ness" than this. 
Specifically, it would involve the library being distributed with GHC 
distributions and included in the documentation at  The base split is 
great, but I hope that it doesn't mean the standard libraries (in this 
sense) are being phased out, or that libraries or documentation will be made 
harder for Haskell newcomers to find and use.
